Accessorize Ladybird

Greetings All!

Another new week begins! Today I wanted to share with you a polish I saw swatches of, and had to go out and buy that same day! This was a couple of months ago though, and although I swatched it on one finger, it's been sitting in the untried pile ever since!

Accessorize do a lovely range of polishes - metallics, glitters, duochromes, all sorts! They also have a range of glitter polishes very similar to the Nails Inc Sprinkles range, or the W7 range (that I don't know the name of! You can see two of them HERE though, and the third one can be found HERE). They have 3 that seem to me to be exactly the same as those 3 W7 polishes, but several that are different.

After debating whether to get more than one, I only bought Ladybird (the one I set out to buy). Black small glitter, in a rasberry jelly base! Red with black glitter? Of course I had to have it! People online had recommended putting it over a matching base, so you can just use one coat of the glitter. I did do that, but I decided to go for 2 coats of the glitter. I found it to be a little clumpy and difficult to apply, so I went for 2 coats, to try and even it out.

Isn't she lovely? Maybe not quite the right red for Ladybird, but still really gorgeous. Left shiny, it looked a bit like dried blood on my nails, so I made it matte (that's why there's a little white dot on my ring finger - apologies! I must clean the bottle lol). I think it probably would look better with the glitter slightly sparser, or maybe with anther colour added, next time I will have to be more careful when applying it. Apart from that, I love it!

I bought this from Superdrug (my local Accessorize doesn't stock their own range of makeup?!) for I believe £3.49 for 10ml. The W7s are £1.95 for 15ml, so I would definitely go for those three over the Accesorize ones (the black and white one is called Leopard Moth. That's all I can remember! But there's a black white and red one the same as W7 Lava Flow, and a blue navy and gold one, exactly the same as W7 Mosaic, which is in turn the same as Nails Inc Pudding Lane!). I would however recommend the shades that are different. They're cute, and unusual! There's an orange one called Bumblebee I've got my eye on!

  1. It is very dense with black glitter, I kind of like that though. Really daft that they don't stock their own cosmetics though.


I love it when you awesome people leave comments! I read and treasure them all, and I'll always respond to a question as soon as I can.
